they are are now realizeing that their taxes have gone up. way up in some cases. and obama care which was supposed to save them $2,500 a year is busting their budgets as the cost of their healthcare is soaring. ultraliberal comedian bill maher must have met with his accountant and gotten his tax bill. here is what he said. >> rich people i'm sure you would agree with this actually do pay the freight in the country. something like 70%. and here in california i just want to say liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. over 50%. i'm willing to pay my share but it is ridiculous. >> mike: like he realizes between the federal tax hike and california's highest income tax in the nation he is going to now be paying about 60% of his income in taxes. and democratic strategist donna brazil who i really respect and like noted that her health insurance was sharply higher than before obama care and she was shocked. donna said this. she said just got off the phone with my healthcare provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. no good answer. well, donna needs to watc
industry and now killing it and not the way to run a railroad. >> can we really consider the ryan budget if obama care is not going to be repealed, can we all agree on that? and he is taking the money and not taking the cost? i mean, his premise is wrong. >> well, his premise -- you can keep the revenue and not have the program. there is falls in the numbers but leave that for another day. ryan wants to cut us to two tax rates 25% and 10%. that has been scored now as being incredibly regressive and puts a huge amount of money in the hands of the wealthy. ryan says he will propose tax loophole closings and preforms level that playing field but the math probably doesn't work and he hasn't specified about what they are. >> what about tax reform? something president obama and the republicans in congress all say they want to do. with would that be a place to start? >> everybody wants corporate tax reform. our system is broken. it creates the wrong incentives and leads to more jobs yaever s overseas. it has to come as part of a bigger package it to get the numbers to work and the bigger packag

't continue with the state of perpetual war. host: let's talk about the budget issues. president obama on the hill last democrats g to house from bloomberg's reporting he all of you to agree to entitlement changes to medicare saying it iscurity better to make the changes when office rather n than a republican. what was your reaction? guest: first, no benefit cuts. the bottom line for myself. no cuts in social security, medicare.nd they are benefits that one works for all of their lives or either disabled or can't work for whatever reason. so, we owe this to the american people. when you talk about reform and medicare and medicaid, social medicare for example, we could allow for more for prescription drugs. that would achieve cost savings. achieve many ways to savings without cutting benefits. the formulas that would cut i do not support. host: what about raising 65igibility for medicare from -- guest: no, i do not support that. when you look at many people in sectors and industrial sectors, coal mining for life e, when you look at spans of african-americans and is a shame lor it but
president obama say the war on terror, when he submitted his last budget, would cost over ten years? he said it would cost $49 $494 billion. so they just waltz in and say, we'll spend $75 billion in the first two years and zero on the war on terror over the next ten years. we're going to -- i just have the ambassador's who's negotiating the agreement in afghanistan for our reduction in forces in my office this week. we're planning to be there for years. we've got drone attacks going on. we've got special forces around the world fighting al qaeda, with whom we are at war with. and that's what's been funding that, this account, and they would just assume it's going to end. and it's not going to end. but if you assume it ends, you save over the president's projection some $400 billion. you can claim you save $400 billion by assuming you're not going to spend money that we're going to spend. so you add up all of these items -- not scoring the scwes, the doc fix -- sequester, the doc fix, the new stick must money, the manipulation of the war costs -- and there's zero deficit reduction. you raise
they trusted more on budget issues voters trusted the democrats by 35%. it is a bigger margin than the margin of victory for president obama in november. the republicans 30%. that is on trust, that is as they say in the trade a big deal. the national republican committee today issued a scathing self critique of the republican party recent failures focus groups describe republicans as narrowminded, out of touch. $1.2 billion last year in the last presidential election alone and the future of the g.o.p. understanding you can't get it done just with money. as a result, the republican national committee has decided to pour resources into its ground game targeting youth and women and hispanics and other minorities while focusing on making the party's message more inclusive and open to different views. i don't know what they paid for the study, but that is kind of vague, don't you think? he had this to say to me last year. >> we can have all the voter contact in the world, but if it is not over a long period of time, it is not going to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six month
this country we had a vigorous debate. president obama laid out his vision of how we deal with some of our big challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those ar
'donnell. have a great night. we now know that when the president's away, republicans will play the same budget games they play when he's here. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel. >> obama in israel for the first time as president. >> joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get from congress. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> i see this visit as an opportunity. >> this trip is heavy on symbolism. >> what is he taking away. >> he and netanyahu had their differences. >> we know he was sort of a supporter of romney. >> netanyahu preferred romney over obama. >> trying to influence an american election. >> there's a lot of water under the bridge. >> i think it is absolutely outrageous. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> some republicans coil at the party plans for the future. >> i know what our principles are. >> the chairman is in the hot seat. >> i am looking to get into communities in the hundreds. >> show up any time. >> i know what our principles are. >> it is what you say and do when you get there matters most to people.
this republican budget for a variety of reasons. first of all, this is an uncompromising ideological approach to our budget issues. we've just been through a major national campaign. where both presidential candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the
is why our senate budget's first priority is boosting our economic recovery. speaker boehner has actually agreed with president obama that our debt does not present -- quote -- "an immediate crisis." so you might think the house budget would phase in cuts responsibly so we can protect our fragile recovery. well, instead the house republican budget would do serious damage to job creation and job growth and doubles down on the harmful cuts from sequestration which the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimates will lower employment by 750,000 jobs this year alone and slow our economic growth. mr. president, the house republican budget will weaken our economy in the long term as well. as any new business owner will tell you, in tight times the last thing you want to do is cut investments that help you make you stronger. that's what the house republican budget does. it cuts investments in education so our students and workers are less prepared for the jobs of the future. it would undermine our ability to upgrade our roads and bridges and highways and ports, even though our national inf
. in some senses you are to the left of barack obama when to comes to the drones and on o the other hand you you are to the right of paul ryan because you say that the budget doesn't cut the budget fast enough. do you think there is room for a realistic feasible presidential candidate who is to the left of obama on some issues and to the the right of paul ryan on other issues? >> i think we have a confusing spectrum. this left/right spectrum doesn't always work for people. i think because of some of that confusion it shows that someone like myself i think could appeal to young people independents and moderates because many of them do think it is a mistake to put people in jail for marijuana use and throw away the key. i think there are people who would like a less aggressive foreign policy. there are all kinds of issues that don't neatly fit in the left/right paradigm that i think would help because we are not the doing well in a lot of the purple and blue states so we do need a candidate that would appeal across the left/right paradigm. >> chris: we have about 30 seconds left. your budget w
the budget over the next ten years. >> but no tax increases. >> no tax increases. the president already got $650 billion worth of tax increases january 1st. he got a trillion dollars worth of tax increases in obama care. this year the federal government will bring in more revenue than any year in our history and yet we're still going to have a trillion dollars budget deficit. spending is the problem. >> the white house says in response, yes, it's true. taxes went up more than $600 billion over ten years at the end of the year but it is also true the white house put $1.5 trillion worth of spending cuts in their budget. the truth is you're both right. i mean, they have offered spending cuts. the taxes did go up. it still hasn't made enough of a dent. you still have to sit down and do something. >> right. i think we're doing our budget this year. actually we're doing it this week here in the house. our budget will balance in ten years. we're going to pass our budget. hopefully the senate will pass their budget. except their budget never comes to balance. the president's budget never comes to b

different from the drastic cuts recently passed by the house, that few if any expect the budgets to be reconciled and instead congress is expecting another fiscal battle in july when president obama will likely ask for increased borrowing power. president obama has returned to washington tonight after his trip to the middle east. the president took a break from diplomacy for the final leg of the trip touring the ancient city ever petra in jordan of the petra was built more than 2,000 years ago, carved out of stone between massive delivers. mr. obama called the scene royry spectacular." >> activists in san francisco gave training on how to protest against the keystone xl pipeline during president obama's upcoming visit. a few dozen gathered at federal building to take part in the training and if approved bit obama administration that pipeline could carry oil from alberta, to refineries on west coast. >> the struggle over california's mental health care of prisoners returns to court next week. a federal judge will consider w whetherbillions of dollars have improved the system eno
san president obama about to sign a funding bill to keep the government running, but it keeps in place budget cuts to programs near and dear to his heart. some say it's great news to the private sector and recovery, with me, dan, from the "wall street journal," and rick unger from "forbes," welcome to you both. i tried to rile you up in the commercials. first you, dan. when you look at all of this, you have to ask yourself, did theepresident misread the g.o.p.? did he misread we'd be so scared that we would allow him to go through with his agenda, and when we made the bet the sun would rise the following morning, and it did, is he now in a tough predecision? >> yeah, he predicted an apocalypse with the sequester, and nothing bad happened, and the republicans called his bluff, and now i think he is in a tough position, sandra, because spending is going down. the sequester is taking effect. it was obama's intention to get federal spending to rise permanently from a historic degree of 21% of gdp. he wants 23% or 24%. it's going in the wrong direction now. sandra: saying more federal spend
this is a historic visit for president obama. >> now's the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful steps to reduce tensions. >> taxing more, borrowing more, and spending more is not a path to prosperity. >> republican budget is same baby with a new diaper. >> the republicans are just totally bamboozled. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> we do have an immediate problem. >> they think they got landslided and they didn't. >> more than half of our members have never dealt with the issue of immigration reform. >>> we start today with all eyes on one of the most volatile regions of the world. as the president prepares to fly to israel just a few short hours from now. and while the president and prime minister netanyahu already have a congested agenda, ranging from the arab spring, to the israeli/palestinian conflict, there was yet another disturbing development today in syria when both the rebels and forces loyal to president assad accused each other of firing chemical weapons that syrian state tv has said killed at least 25 people in the north of the country.

since he's been president obama. and every year right-wingers freak out because president obama fills out a bracket. john boehner retweeted the gop conference, can clutch with his brackets, late with his budgets. he linked his video for filling out a bracket. >> i think it's a disgrace and a joke that the ncaa didn't put us in the tournament. if you ask me it's a bunch of liberal socialism. you can laugh all you want, but it's the truth. and your party's partially responsible for it. >> i promise that was not a horse from the kentucky derby. we should point out ashley judd, who's eyeing mitch mcconnell's seat, is a big kentucky fan too. so chester may want to rethink his conspiracy theory. let's turn to mike wise for the washington post. mike, before we move on to the tournament, what's your reaction to the right wing freaking out over obama every year when he does his bracket? >> the time it took for senator boehner to actually put that tweet together, the time he could have been working on the sequestration problem, it's ridiculous. you know what i love about this president, and irr

with tax reform and the budget. right now homeowners deduct $100 billion in interest payments each year on their mortgages. proposals from the obama administration and some in congress would reduce that by capping itemized deductions, particularly for wealthier families by reducing the size of a mortgage eligible for the deduction like congressman ellison's legislation would do or eliminating the deduction for mortgages on second homes as the housing market continues a fragile recovery, trade groups are fighting back. >> the mortgage interest deduction is the biggest incentive for americans' largest wealth generator and that's their home. we don't think it should be touched. however, everything is on the table when it comes to tax reform. >> home builders, realtors and mortgage lenders are expected to ramp up their lobbying efforts even mores on this debate continues in washington but some officials are bracing for some limits on the mortgage interest deduction. dagen: thank you, peter. connell: you'll here about this coming up. more and more people dipping into retirement plans to make
.s. constitution. no budget for four years? [applause] no budget for four years is not just bureaucratic bumbling. governmentthat is refusing to declare what it intends to do with the people's money. barack obama promised the most transparent administration ever. obama, you lie. [applause] there is a direct correlation between the senate stubbornly refusing to pass the budget and the senate selfishly agreeing to go ahead and spend our children's and grandchildren's money. it is time to get outraged about this. never before have our challenges been so big and our leaders so small. when we were here last year the words on everyone's lips and the wish in your heart was for barack to pack up and bubble wrap the nobel and high tops and head back to chicago. the election came and went but the campaign never stopped. but our country is desperate for but our country is desperate for leadership we get instead a permanent campaign. leaders take risks for the good of our country. leaders reached across political differences. campaigners double down on those differences. leaders seek to bring americans chal
. the ryan republican budget introduced earlier this week reflects an entirely different set of priorities, skewed priorities americans have rejected time and time again. this is the third go-around. president obama was re-elected basically for a number of reasons but not the least of which was the ryan republican budget. they are at it again. it would hand out more budget-busting tax breaks for the wealthy and to pay for these wasteful tax breaks. it would end medicare guaranteed. it would rob 50 million americans of everyday affordable health insurance and raise the taxes on american families. the ryan republican budget would risk lives and risk recovery, and that's just a price too high. i was stunned this morning, mr. president. a republican congress writes an op-ed piece -- i don't know if it was in the "times" or "the post" but saying the ryan republican budget isn't good enough for the tea party. it should be even more stringent than that. that's what we're faced with here, mr. president. and the work done by chairman murray reflects the priorities of the american people. not the --
, not the government. they know we need to control washington spending and balance the budget in order to kick start economic growth and to create american jobs. they are just so tired, tired of the obama economy. they are tired of the endless pivots to jobs that never result in the kind of sustained job creation we need. they are tired of the sluggish growth, of always looking to the future with anxiety, worrying whether medicare will even be there when they retire, and they are tired of the ideological d.c. democratic extremism that got us here. knee jerk solutions to almost every single problem -- massive overspending, steadfast opposition to reforms that would make government programs more efficient, effective and sustainable. so my friends across the aisle shouldn't be surprised their budget is getting such a rough ride. it contains up to $1.5 trillion in new taxes. this would be the largest tax hike in american history. it contains half a criminal more in spending, money that could be siphoned -- that will be siphoned out of the economy and into the hands of politicians and bureaucrats. it lac
billion in across-the-board sequestration cuts and heads to president obama for his signature. the house also approved paul ryan's budget proposal which would cut 4.6 trillion dollars over 10 years, repeal the 2010 health care law and replace traditional medicare with a government subsidy to purchase health insurance. the house will return tuesday, april 9. we will have live coverage. meanwhile, a live look in the u.s. senate chamber. the senators will be speaking throughout the day. 50 hours of debate underway in the u.s. senate and you can follow that on c-span two. we expect a round of amendment votes this afternoon. among the amendments they have debated and voted on, the proposal by house republicans, the ryan budget, which failed in the senate as an amendment by a vote of 40-59, and they also passed narrowly an amendment the medicalveal device tax in the 2010 health care law. again, the debate is underway. we caught up with a capitol hill reporter for inside information on the budget proposals in the house and senate. among the amendments they have debated and .ost: let's talk abou
expectations for this trip low, mr. obama is coming home with diplomatic cous. mr. obama will be coming home to a just passed senate budget proposal. it squeaked through the democratic-controlled senate by a razor thin vote of 50-49, that happened at 5:00 in the morning here all but four democrats voted in favor of the plan which would increase taxes by $1 trillion over the next decade, all the republican senators opposed it. >>> north carolina is aunnoing a new look for license issued to some undocumented immigrants. the licenses will look similar to traditional licenses, but will carry the words "legal presence, no lawful status." north carolina drew fire over the original licenses which had a pink stripe across the card, some critics compared it to a scarlet letter. >>> in new york the event starts at noon at the vietnam veterans memorial plaza in manhattan. >>> investigators trying to see if the dead ex-conhad any involvement of a murder in january. evan ebel died after a shoot-out in texas with police that was thursday. police are focusing on the car which fits the description of the ve
saw a vote yesterday on the budget resolution, on the repeal of a medical device tax that was included to help finance the national health care law in the early part of the obama administration. the reason it's spring training is that budget resolutions themselves are not lost. so these are not binding votes, but they're a way to test sent ims for what they make later on and that's what we're seeing on the online sales tax situation. 48 states already have laws on the books requiring online retailers to collect state sales tax, but those laws are often ignored and you have a bill that has some bipartisan support that would require all states to collect those taxes. if split, the big box brick and mortar retailers from online sellers and it's also split some of the online community. amazon is supporting this, but ebay is against it. they're looking for a carveout for their business model. so what we're going to see is does this effort to collect these taxes have more than 60 votes? if it does, that's going give momentum to this cause later on in the congress, maybe give a push to the ef

[video clip] dowe knew the work that you would not get done if left solely to the private sector. some research does not lend itself to a quick profit, and that is why places like the nih were founded, and that is why my administration is for the pursuit of discovery, and that is why we are announcing we were awarded $5 billion, that is with a b, in grants through the recovery act to conduct cutting- edge research all across the america. >> assuming you were in

budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans and part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people support balancing our budgets, and the budgets that democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and much higher taxes from the american people. we hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that balances the budget. let's be clear, democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget are out of step. the american people know you cannot continue to spend money you do not have. i did not come here for a federal tight -- fancy title. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream that i had, not some mountain of debt. that is why republicans are working to balance the federal budget. been talk about the budget here. thatu think budgets -- they are essentially political weapons -- [indiscernible] have they just become weapons, because at the end of the day they are not binding? ofa budget is
